"Ocean Drive" as written by and Paul John Tucker....
Say it's true, black and blue, I can share your situation
Been holding our emotions back, will only make us cry
If you go, I know, but you know, it ain't so serious anyway
When the clouds arise we'll live on

Ocean Drive
Don't know why you're so blue
Sun's gonna shine on everything you do
And the sky is so blue
Sun's gonna shine on everything you do

He left you Black and blue, without a word of explanation
And he took your love for granted and he left you high and dry
You know someday, when you'll wonder what you see in him anyway
What that days arrives we'll live on

Ocean Drive
Don't know why you're so blue
Sun's gonna shine on everything you do
And the sky is so blue
Sun's gonna shine on everything you do

    General CommentA song with a great message of encouragement. Sounds so great, at times relaxing, at times rocking, at times epic. Ive elected this as one of my funeral songs.

    General CommentMy mum passed away recently, and this is a song that reminds me of her. She was so beautiful, and was such a good person. She also was given a hard time by some men in her life, and this song sums that up for both of us. The thing is, I know that she will live on forever, and the sun did shine on everything she did, and everything she will do.
    It is such a good song to remind you that whatever happens in your life, you are only a human and there is only so much you can do about it, but if you are strong then you will heal and things will become become brighter. Ultimately and metaphorically, you will live on your own Ocean Drive.
    Peace out.

    Song MeaningThey were on BBC Breakfast this morning (17/01/2011) saying that Ocean Drive was in Newcastle. Just looked on Google Maps and the nearest is Ocean Road in South Shields. It doesn't look that special - fine enough as a shopping street - just not anywhere you'd actually *aspire* to live ... anyone have the full story on where it is?

    General CommentReplying to Agatha's comment, basically every single from Lighthouse Family can do that, so i'd just advise to buy two of their albums, Ocean Drive and Postcards from Heaven Cd's.

    General Commenti love this song. this is like a stalker song, in my opinion.but in a sweet kinda way.it is in the POV of a third party watching a girl being treated badly by her dick-sucking boyfriend,and he offers solace...

    General CommentTo me, this is a song that the guy (like i can spell OR pronounce his name) is singing to someone that he loves, and she's split up with a husband or bf, possibly an abusing one (black and blue)

    love the song though. always makes me smile. as do all lighthouse songs. god i need to buy them on CD (only got tapes)
